Participate in EAB’s Financial Sustainability Collaborative for Administrative and Organizational Effectiveness to assess the overall fitness of critical administrative functions and quantify savings opportunities.

For over a decade, improving administrative efficiency and effectiveness has been a top-of-mind concern for institutions of all sizes. Headlines decry administrative bloat and point to rising tuition costs; meanwhile institutional budgets continually tighten. With ever-increasing resignation concerns and permanent pandemic-induced operational changes, now is the time to identify meaningful opportunities for improvement. University business leaders need to find administrative savings opportunities for their universities to grow.

Our administration is already lean, and I have no idea where to start to recoup meaningful savings across our multiple units. Where are my biggest opportunities?

About the collaborative

EAB’s Financial Sustainability Collaborative for Administrative and Organizational Effectiveness will bring 30 university partners together to size administrative savings opportunities. Aimed at business affairs leaders, your CBO or equivalent will serve as an executive sponsor and nominate an implementation leader to participate in the collaborative. Through the collaborative, you will work through a set curriculum, collect campus data, and use EAB-designed workbooks to calculate your savings. With our expert guidance, you’ll complete three analyses during the Collaborative:

  • Calculate opportunities to centralize administrative tasks
  • Benchmark managerial effectiveness
  • Leverage momentum for flex work and identify opportunities to reclaim space

Workshops and programming to help size your administrative savings opportunities

1. Enhance organizational effectiveness and capacity

  • Complete distributed staff analysis to surface opportunities to centralize work and unlock additional staff capacity
